      (NY-NJ) Council of Presbyters Meet

      Thursday, July 8, 2010

      The newly appointed Council of Presbyters [CP] of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey gathered with His Grace, Bishop Michael, at the diocesan center in Bronxville NY on July 8, 2010. In a meeting that lasted nearly five hours, the bishop and assembled priests discussed a host of issues affecting the life of diocese.

      Intended to be a consultative body to the Diocesan Bishop, the CP is comprised of twelve priests representing longevity in pastoral vocation, breadth of pastoral experience, and contemporary pastoral ministry at the parish level: 2 retired Archpriests, 8 Archpriests serving as active parish rectors, and 2 Priests (one married, one monastic) serving as active parish rectors. During the meaningful discussions, deliberations, future planning and concluding with a fellowship meal, a spirit of congeniality and brotherly affection among the participants, as co-laborers in Christ's vineyard, gathered around the hierarch was clearly evident. Information highlighting this historic meeting will be available soon in a release from the Office of Communications.
